    1. So this will be a short blog post because I just want to announce that my webtoon, "Geisha Epic" is now available online.

      I just uploaded chapter one to webtoons.com. I thought of uploading to Tapas too but I got turned off that they only allowed 10 MB for a chapter. And chapter 1 of my webtoon is pretty big at 20 MB. Since it's the first chapter I decided not to keep it short and just go for it.

      If I want to upload to Tapas, I have to divide chapter one into two. And I don't want to do that because I feel like I'm cheating the reader. Making it look like it's longer than it actually is. So I'm passing on Tapas for now.

      But someday I want to make a webtoon that is exclusively only to Tapas. Because they have some interesting features that webtoons.com doesn't have.

      If you've been following this blog, thank you so much. I really appreciate it. And no it's not ending. I will still make blog psots as I continue to work on Geisha Epic. I will just switch to my visual novel for now.

      Check out the debut chapter of my webtoon here: https://cutt.ly/IQpeahC

      See you in the next blog.

    2. For me, one of the most poignant aspects of slice-of-life is how the genre treats the concept of time. The chain of moments that make up the series slowly advances, but there are rarely consequences to the flow of time itself. This is a necessary thing. The environment and situation remain relatively static in order to highlight the development of their characters. The removal of “real time” from slice-of-life is what makes the characters (and their interactions with one another) endure as charming and heartwarming.  

      One of my favorite examples of this is from Nichijou. There are little transitions that occasionally follow a scene, what the folks at the Nichijou wiki refer to as interstitials. They’re only a few seconds long, displaying the title of the anime and usually some sort of small animation. While they contribute next to nothing to our understanding of the story, I love them immensely. To me, they’re slice-ier and life-ier than Nichijou’s already slice-of-life plot. Major respect for Kyoto Animation for how they implemented these scenes.

       

      And enough talking, here are a few interstitials that I thought were really fun:

      Episode 3-3 Interstitial: Clap and Paper Koi

      Episode 3 Interstitial 3

      Episode 6-2 Interstitial: Scissors in Pencil Sharpener

      Episode 6 Interstitial 2

      Episode 10-2 Interstitial: Steam from Tea and Coffee

      Episode 10 Interstitial 2

      Episode 3-3 Interstitial: Toast in Tissue Box

      Episode 13 Interstitial 1

      Episode 15-5 Interstitial: Alligator Rolling Daruma Doll

      Episode 15 Interstitial 5
